Governor Jay Inslee...

It’s with urgency that I write this.  With this Covid19 Pandemic sweeping the world, it bothers me, and millions others, that the concern of the prison system there in Washington State, is not taken as serious as it should.  
My loved one is incarcerated at Walla Walla Correctional Facility and the horror stories I have heard should bring fear to the entire state of Washington.  No one seems to understand that these prisons are a Petri dish for this virus to spread and really get out of control very fast.  Your officers and inmates are in grave danger.  No one is practicing social distancing because they really can’t.  They do not have masks or gloves.  No hand sanitizers....not allowed.  They are not allowed to cover their faces to even semi protect them from this. 
I understand what prison is and what it’s for.  But at this point something drastic needs to be done before something more drastic happens.  
Inmates that are low risk at reoffending , 50 and over, compromised immune systems, those 3 strikers who have that second chance because of SB 6202 that is on pause because of this situation, ....they need to be released as soon as possible.  We are struggling on the outside of prison to take care of those affected by this virus.  What happens if it spreads inside?....who takes care of them...and I’m speaking for the inmates and the officers, and all other workers.  Eliminate some of the inmates...eliminate a lot of the problem .

 I urge you to act on this immediately.  Time is of the essence.

Thank you
